Things really picked up after my last post. Unfortunately I haven't run too well this trip, I started out in a $25K 275 Big Bet Downswing. I've since won about 26K and 200 BB's. I was pretty rusty the first few days here. I put no studying or work into my game the three months I was home from Costa Rica and I definitely paid a price. It's the first year I didn't spend my off time working on my game. It's a lesson learned and I don't intend on jumping back into the games cold again after any extended period off.
I'm leaving Toronto tomorrow, heading to Boston for Christmas, then back to San Fran for New Years. It's looking more and more like I'll be heading to the Philippines at the beginning of next year. As anyone who reads my blog knows, I love to play pool so it seems like an ideal place to go. My only concern is the time difference which might force me to be up for most of the night.
In other news I started learning/studying PLO after my last post. Every time I've looked at the PLO lobby there are games running at virtually every limit seemingly around the clock. Ideally I'd like to be proficient at that game so that when things are slow in the limit world I have another option. It's obviously going to take quite a while but I've already started reading and have watched three videos so far. I played about fifty hands of 50 cent/$1 last night and felt somewhat comfortable. It's one of those things that I know if I put the time into, I'll be rewarded. So the plan is to keep studying and improving and playing whenever possible.
